McVey grew up in Cockfosters, North London and was educated at Queen Elizabeth's Boys' School, Barnet. In 1983 he fathered a son, Marlon Roudette, with Vincentian artist and designer Vonnie Roudette.
In 1986, as half of duo Morgan-McVey, he released the single "Looking Good Diving", whose B-side "Looking Good Diving with the Wild Bunch" would later be reworked into Neneh Cherry
's 1988 single "Buffalo Stance".
McVey met Neneh Cherry in 1987 at Heathrow Airport while they were en route to Japan as fashion models as part of London Designer Ray Petri's Buffalo Posse. The couple wed in 1990; they have two daughters. One of their daughters is singer Mabel. The family lived throughout Europe. In 1993 they moved near Málaga, Spain and lived there until 1999. Briefly in 1995 they lived in Brooklyn, New York, where they had purchased a home in the Park Slope neighborhood. Soon after moving in, the couple was held up at gunpoint and robbed by a teenage bandit. They headed back to London's Primrose Hill, eventually migrating to Cherry's native Hässleholm, Sweden, living in the same schoolhouse-turned home (featured in the Homebrew
album's artwork) where Cherry was raised.
